After School Enrichment Offerings and Schedule

Our Mt. Washington School students can enjoy a robust offering of after school classes that enrich their educational experience. The collaboration between MWPTA and FOMWS brings an assortment of class offerings to our students. Our After School Enrichment classes are meant to help support the varied interests of your children and are not an after school care program.


Once you enroll your child in a class make sure that the teacher has confirmed receipt of your payment and enrollment. 


If you have any general questions, want to make a class suggestion, and/or want to share your talents with our school community you can contact Sonal Khemani at
